Schwabing, Munich.
Collapse map / See photo gallery

Still regarded by many as the social hub of the city, Schwabing is probably Munich’s most popular neighborhood, especially in the evenings and on weekends.

This posh and trendy district is known for attracting an elite crowd – referred to by many Germans as the “Schickeria” of Munich – and some of its bars, restaurants, and clubs are definitely priced to match.

On summer days, the bustling street cafés on Leopoldstrasse are packed with glamorous patrons in designer sunglasses soaking up the sun and engaging in unabashed people-watching.

This street is also famous for its nightlife, which centers on a few high-end lounges and swanky dance clubs where it’s not unusual to run into local celebrities and the paparazzi who wait for them as they stumble out after a long night of partying.

Exclusive as they may be, these venues and their upper-crust clientele nonetheless get just as boisterous as their more accessible counterparts throughout Schwabing.
